The second volume to the series sets out to discover the ancient traditions of body adornment and beautification of Central Asia, where the ‘East’ and ‘West’ have converged, and where great civilisations of the past have fused to create the societies and cultures today.
Peter Schoenborn is an independent scholar, writer and explorer who has spent the last two decades listening to women from indigenous societies around the globe and documenting their authentic interpretations of beauty and cosmetic rituals. Combining the studies of aesthetics as well as the practices of visual arts on the human body and their myriad of cultural meanings, in 2000, Peter began Beholding Beauty to facilitate the dissemination of this indigenous expertise and know-how in the fields of wellbeing. Today, Peter’s vocation is to be of service to indigenous peoples around the globe and believes that by participating in the rescue of this fast-fading empirical wisdom, an essential part of our universal heritage can be preserved–not only for us today but also for future generations to come.
